Currently there’s no bus service to Spring Valley, which is about two and a half miles from Highway 82. That’s the closest point to connect with public transportation up and down the Roaring Fork Valley. Colorado Mountain College, or CMC, says it’s now providing a free shuttle service from Spring Valley to Highway 82, as well as Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. It does not continue to more far flung campuses, like Rifle or Aspen.
The free shuttle service runs Monday through Thursday. It’s funded by CMC’s student government association. A CMC student or employee ID is required to ride, or a photo ID plus a class schedule. And it may be free for only a limited period of time.
The community college hopes to make getting to and from Spring Valley significantly easier for students without their own car.
